About NOCP

New Orleans College Prep's mission is to prepare students with academic and life skills for success in college, career, and beyond. Our vision is to establish public schools of excellence - "private schools for free" - for at-risk and underserved children in New Orleans.
Pre-Katrina, only 1 in 10 public high school students graduated from college.  NOCP is on a mission to turn those statistics around and ensure ALL of our children have an opportunity to succeed in college and beyond.
NOCP currently operates three (3) school sites in Orleans Parish. They are:
  • John W. Hoffman Early Learning Center
  • Walter L. Cohen College Prep
All operations of NOCP schools are overseen by the Board of Directors.
